the food is terrible bordering on inedible. horrible combinations for every category from appetizers to dessert. however this is not the fault of the servers who are attentive and informed. the chef should rethink his menu and put some effort into making the food palatable.

Not worth the price. Interesting and old feeling decor, not so good (cheaply poured drinks) and the overpriced food is just ok. Not what I expect to receive when the prices they charge are so high. Sad to see a place with such a good location fail so miserably. Good luck surviving.

Despite having wonderful decor - they lack a lot in service. We showed up and waited for a table with no hostess in sight to help... several servers walked by us but never acknowledged us so finally we went over to the bellman to ask for help. Someone finally helped us but she never apologized for the wait when the restaurant wasn't even busy. For breakfast we ordered { 3 EGG OMELETTE W/BACON TOMATO AND SAUSAGE} and my friend ordered the {SMOKED SALMON}. The omelette was good and i ordered a side of fruit with it - that had some really nice fruit including papaya, mango, and figs. Smoked salmon was good but nothing out of the ordinary. My friend also ordered the {BLOOD ORANGE MIMOSA} which was delicious. Overall food was good but lack of attention/service falls short for such a nice place.

pleasant decor - a prime outdoor seat makes you wonder what they do with all the nice furniture if there' s an unexpected downpour... we ordered the tasting menu with wine pairing. unfortunately, the wines seemed to be selected in part by our waitress, who could not describe wines accurately - or comment on why the wine was chosen to go with the course. fortunately - the selection seemed to make sense, even if she didn't... go earlier for some quiet, before the beautiful people make anyone eating feel fat.....
